Mail Art Monday!!

It's Monday and I have a little mail art to share...
I love making my own envelopes so I can work on them all opened up and flat.

Grab a cuppa and I will show you...


I cut the envelope from mixed media paper


Stamped my image, Fed Up Vintage Lady,  on the envelope and the masking paper.


Masked the image and a place for the address.


I created the background color with Distress Oxide Ink and a brush.


I love this technique...just brush the color on the paper!


Then another color at the edges.


Spritz some water.


Splatter some Distress Spray in coordinating colors.


Then some background stamping, Rows of Numbers and Cross Marks Background.


Pull up the mask and finish with staping and doodling.


I used Miracle Tape to assemple the envelope.


Peel and stick!!

This is the finished envelope.


I stamped in the address box with the String of Tassels (designed by me).


Our vintage lady is colored with Distress Markers.

Those watermarks make me SO happy!!


Thanks for stopping by!!!
Until next time...get inky!
